Bolton School Former Pupils
From Torpedoes to the Sound of Music
In spring 2015, Old Boy Malcolm Howe (1948-1956) produced a pamphlet detailing the unlikely connections between Old Boy and inventor of the torpedo Robert Whitehead (1823-1905) and the original von Trapp family singers. His research, by pure chance, coincided exactly with the School's most recent production of The Sound of Music.
